Roasted Cauliflower Tacos
2 lbs cauliflower
2 tbsp olive oil
2 minced garlic cloves
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
½ tsp onion powder
1 tsp sea salt
veggies—radish tomatoes, red cabbage, onion
Cut the cauliflower into florets, and then pour olive oil over the cauliflower. Add the garlic and the spices. Toss to combine.
Spread on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 450F until golden, about 18-20 minutes. Fill your tortillas with the cauliflower, and top with veggies and tahini. Serve!
Chipotle Shrimp Tacos
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1/8 cup red onion, diced
1 tsp cajun seasoning (or more if you prefer it spicy)
1/2 lb. cooked shrimp (large, peeled, cut in half)
4 corn tortillas
1/4 cup green onion, diced
salt to taste
Place the shrimp in a mixing bowl and add the cajun seasoning. Toss until mixed. Set aside.
Heat skillet to medium and add olive oil and red onions. Stir until it sizzles. Next, add your shrimp to the skillet and squeeze the lime over the shrimp. Serve on heated corn tortillas. Top with avocado, green onion, and chipotle crema.
Chicken Avocado Bowl Tacos
1 cup black beans, cooked
1 cup canned corn
1 cup shredded rotisserie chicken
1 cup shredded cheddar, plus more for topping
1 package Taco Seasoning
2 tbsp fresh cilantro,
3 ripe avocados
1 cup ranch dressing
1/4 cup lime juice
1 tbsp fresh cilantro
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
In a large bowl, combine black beans, corn, chicken, cheddar, taco seasoning, and fresh cilantro. Stir until combined. Halve and separate three avocados, removing pit and hollowing out insides. Mash insides in a small bowl and set aside.
Place avocado boats face up and fill each with 1/3 cup of filling. Sprinkle with more cheddar and more fresh cilantro.
Optional: Place the avocado bowls in the oven for 2 minutes on a low heat to melt the cheese.
